At Home in the Coral Reef
Under the sea!
Down in the tropical blue sea lives a spectacular coral reef that is home to myriad fish and other creatures. Travel on a breathtaking journey over a reef crest, to a lagoon that sparkles at night, and on through mangrove roots with a baby coral searching for a home. Flashlight fish, feather duster worms, and sea squirts are just a few of the amazing animals you will encounter.
A fact-filled text accompanies this luminous journey through the sea and introduces children to some of the dangers that threaten the coral reef ecosystem. Katherine Brown-Wing's illustrations invite you on a brilliant visual adventure you'll never forget.
